Keshia and Elliott

How We Met

We first met way back when I was just 14, he was 16, in the fall in the town that we both had grown up in. I knew right away he was going to be someone special to me. We dated on and off throughout high school but always remained one of my best friends. Finally, years later while I was living in a different city attending university, I had an extremely vivid dream about him and I knew as soon as I woke up that we needed to be together. I contacted him, and after a few weeks things just fell perfectly into place for us. He’s been my best friend for ten years and now I’ll be forever grateful having the privilege of calling him my husband.

How He Asked

There’s this beautiful path that leads to a river flowing right by our house. We have this area that months earlier we had claimed as “our spot” where the trees open up and a rock path goes across the water. He took me for a walk at sunset to our spot, and got so nervous that he missed it, but picked an equally as beautiful spot, dropped to one knee just as the sun was going down and asked me to marry him. I replied with a “YESYESYESYESYES!!!” and nearly knocked him over. It was the most perfect moment!
